About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

Bittersweet Germany

I woke up well before Anne on May 3 and saw the news re: SCOTUS overturning Roe. I didn't tell Anne until today. Yesterday turned out to be one of our best ever, as I was much better able to shut out being upset about things I can't do anything about. I was living in the moment instead. 

The weird fermenter they use at this winery.

Just outside the train station in Regensburg.

Along the river in Regensburg, where all the tourist boats tie up: 
"Animals also have right!"

This R2-D2 stencil was here in 2018!
